Gideon Romm had some debs he sent me to get the AMD driver to work on Gutsy.  Not sure if he's got them for Hardy as well.  He told me that Symbio had hired a developer to fix the AMD video driver, but I guess it wasn't done in time for inclusion in Hardy (based on what you're saying).

You can probably get Gideon at support at symbio-technologies.com
